Jump Force is essentially the biggest crossover between anime characters since J-Stars. It features a roster of 40 iconic characters, and for a guy who has watched all the shows, it doesn’t get better than this, or does it? Although the game promised a lot of content, it ultimately turned out to be mediocre at best. On paper, it is everything that you would expect from a crossover game but the core implementation feels lazy. Jump Force sees humanity invaded by “Venoms” – mind-controlled humans that have gained super-human strength. The game starts by showing a fight scene between Frieza and Goku. Frieza uses a Death Beam and it hits you, the main character of this game. Trunks arrive on the scene because Trunks will always be the scapegoat for Fighting games with Dragon Ball characters, miraculously revives you by putting an Umbra Cube inside you. The Umbra Cube gives you the same abilities as what Venoms are getting except the mind-control. Long story short, it … [Read more...] about Jump Force Review – Biggest Anime Crossover, Even Bigger Disappointment

Two of YouTube’s biggest and most controversial YouTubers, KSI and Logan Paul, weighed in for their fight Friday evening in Manchester, England. The same day, the U.K.’s Culture Secretary warned the BBC, Britain’s biggest traditional TV channel, to watch its back. YouTube was coming. Whether you’re a fan of the fight or think it’s a money grab, the sheer number of press — including the BBC — in attendance at Friday’s weigh-in indicates the politician was wrong. YouTube’s already here. “I feel like for years, old media has always neglected YouTube, pushed back and felt like YouTube wasn’t a real media outlet,” KSI, the British YouTuber with 19 million subscribers, told Polygon. (Logan Paul’s management denied interview requests made ahead of time and on the day of the weigh-in.) “Now, it’s getting to the point where it’s so big you can’t ignore it.” Nearly 20,000 are expected in … [Read more...] about KSI speaks ahead of fight: YouTube is bigger than ever, and this is just the beginning
A METEOR is looming in the skies above Fortnite:Battle Royal sparking theories the hit game is in for apocalyptic changes.

This interview is part of our Road to the IGF series. You can find the rest by clicking here. Vignettes encourages exploration and curiosity through manipulatable objects, hiding whole new items and stories through touch, rotation, and orientation of colorful things. Each of the bright, toy-like items that Vignettes displays hides a narrative within it, and should the player figure out how to shift these objects around, they'll awaken snake spirits, save stray cats, and more as they move through the motions. Gamasutra had a chat with Pol Clarissou of Skeleton Business, developers of Vignettes, and David Kanaga, its music designer, to talk about creating a curiosity and need to explore with a single object that seems simple at a glance, yet hides a story within its changing shapes. What's your background in making games? Clarissou: Armel (Gibson) and I have both been doing shortform experimental games for a few years during our free time. Armel also worked on … [Read more...] about Road to the IGF: Skeleton Business’ Vignettes
